Oral Microbiome Test

What is Oral Microbiome Analysis?

Oral Microbiome Analysis is a diagnostic test that uses advanced quantitative PCR technology to precisely analyze the oral microbiome. This test is crucial for understanding and managing both local dental issues and systemic health conditions by providing a comprehensive view of the microbial organisms present in the mouth. Since gut health begins in the mouth, maintaining a healthy oral microbiome is essential for overall digestive health and can play a vital role in preventing and managing health conditions.

How does Oral Microbiome Analysis work?

The Oral Microbiome Analysis test employs quantitative PCR to detect and measure the DNA of microorganisms in the oral cavity. This method is highly accurate and sensitive, allowing for the detection of even low levels of microorganisms that may be present.

This test kit can be sent directly to your home, with easy instructions to collect a sample and send it back to the lab for testing.

The analysis provides data that allows you to determine clinically significant findings of pathogenic organisms and oral dysbiosis patterns. Scientific research indicates that oral health is integral to maintaining overall health, impacting immune function, cardiovascular health, and more. Additionally, it is helpful for conditions like Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), as imbalances in the oral microbiome can contribute to gut health issues.

What will you discover?

The results of the Oral Microbiome Analysis can provide valuable information about your oral health, including the presence of pathogenic microorganisms that may be causing dental issues or other health problems. The mouth is the entry point to the digestive system, and harmful bacteria from dental issues like cavities, gum disease, or infections can be swallowed and travel to the gut. This can disrupt the delicate balance of the gut microbiome, leading to dysbiosis, an imbalance between beneficial and harmful gut bacteria. Poor oral health can significantly impact gut health due to the continuous interaction between the oral and gastrointestinal microbiomes. The test can also identify imbalances in the oral microbiome that may be contributing to systemic conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and inflammation. By understanding and addressing these imbalances, you can improve your oral and overall health through targeted dietary and lifestyle changes.
